Yesterday was the first day of Summer and I couldn’t think of anything more appropriate to chat about than SPF! Except maybe a fun bikini or a fruity cocktail. 😉
We all know how important it is to protect our skin from the sun, and not just in the Summer. It’s one of those things that we all know we should do, but slip up on sometimes. Before I head off to the beach or pool for the day, I make sure to lather (or “goop up” as my family always called it), with sunscreen. But on a daily basis, I’ll be honest…I could be a bit more proactive. I do use a moisturizer or foundation with an SPF to be sure my face is covered (no pun intended), but the rest of my body isn’t always in the clear. Note to self: pick up a body lotion with an SPF …ASAP.
I have a couple of face products in rotation that keep my skin protected on the SPF front, but I want to share one in particular with you today. Over the winter, I loved the Olay Whips Moisturizer – you may remember seeing it featured on my blog and Instagram! The weightless, anti-aging formula leaves my skin feeling ridiculously soft, smooth, and with a velvety matte finish…it’s like a moisturizer and primer in one. But wait, it just got better. They’ve come out with a version that includes Broad Spectrum SPF 25 …um, YES!
This new formula has a bit more weight to it. It’s still very much whipped, but a bit creamier in my opinion. I actually prefer it to the original. TIP: I still use it on my hands. Not only does it keep them soft & hydrated, but now it’s protecting them from the sun as well. Win, win, win.
Since I’m officially in my 30’s (eek!), SPF and I are going to be in a committed relationship. I’ve been trying to take great care of my skin over the past couple of years, but now more than I ever I’m becoming adamant about it. I love that there are products that make it 10x easier to stay protected. You can pick up the Olay Whips with SPF 25 up at Walmart for $30. A little bit goes a long way, so one tub should last you well into the Fall.
What are some of your beauty must-haves this season? Specifically any body lotions with SPF that you love! Let me know below.
Here’s to a fun Summer… and to healthy, hydrated skin! 🙂

A new one with SPF? Yea!!! I’m in! I’m like you – I think about my face but totally forget about protecting the rest of me on a daily basis. I need to do some SPF body lotion research. I’ll let you know if I find a good one. I use the LUV SCRUB body exfoliator every day in the shower – more powerful than a loofah. I am good about applying body lotion after, so at least my skin is really smooth.
Thank you so much for the heads up on that scrub! I’m in desperate need of a new one and it sounds pretty amazing! Please let me know if you come across a good body lotion with SPF, I’ll do the same. I want to look into it too 🙂 XOXO
I know the creator of the LUV SCRUB, and I’ve been a fan for years and years, even before it was available for purchase. I have one at home and one that I travel with. It’s truly an amazing (simple, but amazing) product!
Oooh I’m sold! Will be checking this out ASAP 🙂
